Where is all of this money going? Maybe all this money printing will fuel another huge market run-up? Granted I would really hate to see that because when the honeymoon was over it would be disasterous, but you have to admit it would catch so many investors by surprise.

The Fed’s money-printing operations are showing-up in the explosive growth of the monetary base, which includes banknotes and coins in circulation, plus commercial banks’ reserves held at the Fed. The monetary base has soared by $630-billion in the past three-months, or +76% higher from a year ago. Between August 1987 and November 2005, under “Easy” Al Greenspan, the monetary base rose from $233-billion towards $782-billion, or an annualized +6.8% rate of expansion.
